Overview

An Insider's Gripping Account Of The Reshaping Of America's Nuclear Arsenal Following The Cold War. . . General Butler played a leading role in reducing and reshaping America's nuclear forces, weapons stockpile and target plan as the Cold War was winding down. Concerned about the loss of momentum in this historic opportunity following his retirement, and the departure from office of Presidents George H. W. Bush and Mikhail Gorbachev, General Butler continued his efforts to reduce the dangers posed by the residual arsenals and plans. His highly publicized global campaign was both praised and condemned, striking a deeply emotional chord among supporters and critics alike. His assessment of the risks incurred by some forty years at the nuclear brink was that "The world escaped a nuclear holocaust by some combination of skill, luck, and divine intervention. My experience has taught me it was likely the latter in greatest proportion."
